Grilled Salmon With Baked Onions
There is something almost pudding-y about a slow-cooked onion with the mellow sweetness that
the oven coaxes out. I could also happily eat this grilled salmon with baked onion recipe cold the following
* * *
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
You will need:
4 small yellow onions
Salt and pepper
142ml single/light cream
50g grated Parmesan or Gruyère
2 fat skinless fillets of wild salmon
To begin, peel the onions and boil them whole in a pan of water for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4.
When the onions are tender, take them out of the water and cut them in half. Place
them in a heatproof shallow dish, season them, add the cream and sprinkle the grated cheese on top. Put them
in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
When the onions have been cooking for 15 minutes, wash and season the salmon. Pour a
generous slick of oil on each fillet and squeeze the juice of half a lemon over each. Heat a grill pan and
sear the salmon for about five minutes on each side.
By now the onions should be bubbling and golden brown on top. Serve on a plate with
the salmon and a plain green salad, with a sharp vinaigrette.
